How to configure the local keyboard layout in dCore
« on: December 10, 2018, 11:26:37 PM »
Hi,

When using TinyCore, I can follow instructions and configure the keyboard like this:

Quote
The extension "kmaps.tcz" was created just for this. It includes all keymaps from the kbd package. Keymaps have to be changed in the console, not in X.
So, for a quick test, load the extension, exit to prompt, and type:

sudo loadkmap < /usr/share/kmap/qwerty/fi-latin9.kmap

To make this permanent, add the extension kmaps.tcz to your persistent tce directory, and then either use the bootcode kmap=qwerty/fi-latin9, or add the command to /opt/bootlocal.sh (missing the sudo, since bootlocal is executed as root):

loadkmap < /usr/share/kmap/qwertz/fi-latin9.kmap

For dCore, that package name was not recognized, I tried

Code: newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]
sce-import kmaps
I get the
Quote
Warning: 'kmaps' is not available as a package, exiting..

When looking in the Wiki for dCore, I find this empty section:
newbielink:http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extension_strategies#locales_and_languages [nonactive]

Ho do I configure the keyboard in dCore?
